"Unbreakable solidarity" - Waterford to twin with Palestinian town
Waterford City and County Council has voted to twin with a Palestinian town.
The Waterford Metropolitan District will twin with the Ramallah Municipality in Palestine in what has been called "meaningful solidarity".
The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) made the comments on Twitter, and commended the South East branch of the organisation for their "stellar work".
According to the IPSC, South East members have already forged strong connections between Palestinians and Irish schools, trade unions, youth groups, and sports clubs.
Congratulations, mabrouk, this is great to see! Well done to everyone involved, especially the @SEastIpsc activists for their stellar work on this twinning. This is meaningful solidarity. #FreePalestine— IPSC (@ipsc48) September 23, 2021

Secretary of the IPSC South East branch, David Rees, spoke about the news and said, "We look forward to seeing how this twinning between Waterford and Ramallah enriches the lives of both communities and are very heartened to know that representatives from other councils have been in touch with a view to doing the same in their own areas."
Chairperson of the IPSC, Fatin Al Tamimi, said the twinning is "another shining example of the unbreakable solidarity between the peoples of Ireland and Palestine".
